A little something for Easter

I love anything vintage and have been collecting these images from various websites and blogs. I made this Easter canvas for the mantle over my fireplace and I love how it came out! Every now and then I get away from the computer and get my hands dirty with paints and inks and have a ball doing so! This was a very quick project I painted the canvas with Distress Crackle paint in Mustard Seed when it was dry I inked the edges with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. I also inked the bottom layer of paper with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and Antique Linen and punched the edges with a corner punch. The scallops were die cut with the Cricut. I added some flowers and a beautiful piece of lace at the bottom and finished off with stickles.
Thanks for stopping by!
